I was contacted by Tony regarding his daughters lost 1/2 kt. diamond earring. Tony said the diamond earring had belonged to his wives grandmother and finding the missing one was imperative.

Tony said his family had been at his fathers house (Tony Jr.) in Texas City playing volleyball in his backyard. Aviana had gotten to close to the net, and the net pulled the earring from her ear. Tony said, Aviana stopped immediately after feeling the earring being pulled from her ear. Tony said the entire family searched for the earring in the grass, but they were unsuccessful.

Arrangement were made to meet (Tony Jr.-Dad) at his residence on Saturday afternoon to search for the lost earring.

12-13-2014

Arrived Saturday afternoon and met (Tony Jr.) at his residence in Texas City. Tony gave me a walk through of where they believed the earring had fallen after being pulled from Aviana’s ear. I noticed several fresh dug plugs (holes) in the ground. Tony said his son had borrowed a metal detector from a neighbor in an effort to find the earring.

Prior to the good news, Aviana and her mother Courtney arrived and were able to witness the recovery of the lost earring.

Lost Wedding Ring Katy, Texas (Recovered)

Texas Labor Day Slip and Slide, beating the Texas Heat…awesome.

I received a call from Sean on Monday-Labor Day, regarding his lost wedding ring. Sean said he had been at a friends house participating in some labor day festivities when he lost his ring. Sean said they had constructed a giant slip and slide for Labor Day and he had been sliding on it when he discovered his wedding ring missing from his finger.

The Slip and Slide Race:

Sean said the rules to the race were simple slide down the slip and slide, run to a table twenty feet away, chug a beer, and the flip the beer cup until it lands right side up. Once that was done your teammate could start the race and this would continue until all of your teammates completed the race. The best 7 out of 7 runs would determine the winner, my thought was it would be nice if you could still hit the slip and slide after beer 5-6? LOL  Sounds like it was a lot of fun, but unfortunately Sean lost his Wedding Ring at some point during the fun.

Sean said once he discovered his wedding ring was missing everyone at the party stopped and assisted him in looking for his lost ring, but it was not found. Sean said he returned the following day and spent 6 hours working the search area with his fathers metal detector, but he was still not able to find his lost ring.

Sean said he located me on the internet at “The Ring Finders”

I asked Sean to send me a few photo’s of the area needing to be searched,  I always like getting a view of the area prior to the search. Sean sent the following video of the labor day event and a picture of his lost ring.  The video quality is poor, but you will get the idea.

I met Sean today at his friends house in Katy, Texas to search for his lost ring.

 

 

 

I think Sean had completely given up hope of getting his ring back after 2 hours of searching. We took a short break, and then I asked Sean to walk me through the events in detail (where he started from, where he ran too, etc.) and it was at this time we talked about how the slip and slide had been moved a few times to get it just right. I had Sean walk me through the locations of where the slid had been moved from on the previous set-up attempts.

I worked the outer edge of one of the ealier set-up locations and was awaken by a nice tone from the CTX3030. I looked down and saw Sean’s Ring sitting right on top of the grass.

Priceless Treasure Recovered Woodlands, Texas

from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-281-330-7758

06/28/2014

I received a call from Edith today who wanted to know if I could help recover her IPhone from the bottom of the Woodlands Boat House Waterway. Edith said she and her husband Stephen had been kayaking today, and when they returned to the dock and exited their kayaks her phone fell out of her pocket. Edith said it fell in the water right of the edge of the dock into about 7 foot of water.

Edith said prior to the kayaking trip she had placed her phone in a zip lock baggy to ensure it would stay dry while on the kayaking expedition.

Edith said she had obtained my name from Kyle the manager at the Woodland Boat House. (I had recovered Kyle’s Texas A&M Ring several months back when he accidentally dropped it into the waterway)

I told Edith that she shouldn’t count on the phone being undamaged, questioning whether a zip lock baggy would hold its seal at 7 feet. I suggested she just file with her phone’s insurance and pay her small deductible and get a new phone (normally $50.00). I told Edith my operationally cost’s for an underwater recovery would likely exceed that amount.

This is when Edith provided the following information:

  1. Zip Lock Baggy .05 cents
  2. IPhone $199.00
  3. Pictures and Documents on IPhone (priceless)

07/03/2014

I met Stephen at the dock this morning and he was very helpful in providing clear directions on the location of where the phone had been dropped. This is extremely important when dealing with zero visibility water conditions.

I remember from my previous trip to the Woodlands Waterway that the bottom is steel re-enforced concrete with about 6-8 inches of muck and debris on top of the concrete base. I didn’t spend much time on my last trip (it was very cold) trying to dial down my Excalibur to see if I could by-pass the re-bar. I opted to use my hand held Vibra-Tector 730 on this job, and it worked very well, not at all effected by the re-bar in the concrete (a lot less power in the hand held unit),

It was like working inside of a bottle of chocolate milk, but not quite as pleasant of an odor. I told Stephen this waterway reminded me of my days as a law enforcement recovery diver and some of the jobs I had worked and preferred not to remember :)’

Well after a few missed attempts, a bottle top, a piece of wire, a pair of sunglass, Bingo an IPhone.

Metal Detecting Equipment and Training

I just added the Garrett AT Gold to the equipment list. I was looking for a machine that would perform really well on small gold items like diamond earrings and very small diamond pendants. The Minelab CTX 3030 manages well, but the prospecting (AT GOLD) hits these small items really well.

I purchased two small gold items from a local jewelry store for field testing and training purposes. The AT GOLD works amazingly well and should increase my recovery rate for these types of items.

The AT Gold picked out this small earring on its first test run along with some of the smallest specs of aluminum and other debris I have ever recovered.

My first impressions, the machine is awesome,  and it has already proven itself capable of finding micro specs of Au, Ag, and Pt.

Au: Gold

Ag: Silver

Pt: Platinum

Lost 1958 Texas A&M Class Ring Seabrook, Texas (Recovered)

Lost 1958 Texas A&M Class Ring  Seabrook, Texas (Recovered)

Received the following email from Devin on 04/30/2014

I just threw my ring in the water on accident.  I know exactly where it dropped but it’s 5 ft down and I have no way of getting it.  This was my grandfathers ring from 1958.  Let me know ASAP

Follow-up information from Devin

Location: Outriggers Restaurant in Seabrook Texas

About 17 ft deep.  Sticky bottom, couple of inches of mud but very dense mud.  Ring shouldn’t of sunk in mud immediately.  Lots of current and boat traffic.  Sooner the better

There is a lot of boat traffic there because of the launch, this may be a safety barrier, thoughts?

Devin sent the following photos of the dock at the Outriggers Restaurant.

I had to postpone Devin’s search until today, I just couldn’t get away any sooner for this type of job.  Devin was concerned about the delay, and I think he felt it might affect the possibilities of recovering his ring. I was very confident the ring was not going anywhere, I just needed Devin to be sure he knew the right location.

Devin and I met at the Outriggers Restaurant this morning and we discussed how the ring was lost. Devin explained he had been on the upper deck of the restaurant when he tossed some ice over the railing, He said his grandfathers ring flew right off his finger, landed and skidded across the lower floating dock and then dropped off  into the abyss.

Devin said the ring was his grandfathers Texas A&M Class Ring from 1958.

Devin and I transferred all the gear out to the dock, and then discussed how the dive would go,  and what his responsibilities would be topside.

Nearly zero visibility, water temp somewhere around 70, light boat traffic, and tons and tons of debris (spikes, bolts, nails, fishing hooks, and yes plenty of beer tops) on the bottom.

Had built a spot marker dive pole for this job, and Devin held it in position topside as a I worked a three-foot radius around it on the bottom. Had to work it inch by inch, I used a hand held Vibra-Tector 730, their was simply to much debris to try and manage the Excalibur.

About 20 minutes in, and after crawling around on the bottom with the VibraTector 730, and weeding through handful after handful of junk, I got a hold of something from 1958.

The pictures tell the rest of the story.
